Very light, beautiful, hard to drive headphones
cambaz, 23.12.2020
It came in a nice box, well-presented. It's light and feels light on the head. Hardly touches ears. The whole item looks and feels very high-quality, material-wise.
I intend to use these for listening to casual music. I need a relaxed listening experience and this gives me just it. It's amazingly detailed, with a very wide soundstage. If you want to focus on the music, you may do so but for that a Sennheiser HD650 might be a better choice, with relatively non-existent soundstage and in-your-face mids. The K712 feels more in the "front rows", rather than "on the stage"
Also, for immersive gaming (can't speak for competitive) these're amazing.
Don't let the 62 Ohm impedance fool you into thinking you'll be driving these just fine with your typical smartphone. You'll still get a good experience, but you'll most likely benefit a lot from a decent headphone amplifier.
For a casual gamer or listener, these might very well be the endgame.
If you want to get a similar experience, with cut corners in every aspect but mostly the cost,I suggest the fidelio X2HR. But if you have a good amp and can stretch your budget for the K712, you'll not be dissapointed.

Takes some time, but worth it
16.08.2015
AKG headphones have been lifelong companions to me. STarted out with a K-171 which served me well for 12 years, then moved on to K-240 MKII, which has been unbeaten so far... until now.

Unfortunately the first pair arrived with a manufacturing fault, but Thomann did a stellar job replacing the unit with a good one. Doesn't score good points for quality control on AKG's side, but I guess these things happen (hence 4 stars for quality instead of 5).

Build quality: flawless, as usual with their "pro" line. Ear pads are similar to other AKG cans, except under the velour you have memory foam that provides a better low-frequency insulation (without increased pressure on your head). You get two cables, an orange straight one, and the more practical coiled cable, both are of extremely good quality (I have one from my old K-171 that still works after rolling the office chair over it a couple of times).

Comfort: awesome. Light, but sits on its place well, even if you move around with it quite a lot.

Sound: these headphones need to be broken in (they start to sound better after 50 hours, really good after 100 hours of use). After that they really start to sound great. Spacious, incredible 3-dimensional sound stage, with fantastic separation between instruments. Since they are open, don't expect the kind of bass build-up / booming bass that is typical to semi-open and closed models, but in return you get a much more "effortless" sounding, precise low end.

All-in-all: I am using my AKG K-712 PRO for mastering and mixing jobs with great results.

Really good audio and...
Frederik K, 07.07.2020
very nice wear comfort.
The only reason I haven't given these headphones a top rating is that there's a bit "break in" period where the memory foam feels a bit too hard but after that these cans are the most comfortable I've ever had.
Especially for long sessions where even pressure is paramount
Definitely recommendable if you don't have a narrow and small head with small ears, which I din't ;-)
The cups are deep enough that your ears shouldn't touch the inside and the head band flexible enough to give an even pressure atop of ones head. You might want to consider "working" the top leather strap some, since it is made of a thicker quality leather that seem stiff depending on your heads shape. Just flex it real good and the leather will soon feel softer.
A non issue for me
I've read many places that people recommend the use of a pre-amp with these to make them "pop" for real, and that may very well be the case. However I have NO problem driving them of the on-board audio on my motherboard (z390 Aorus Master from Gigabyte). But then I don't own an amp so I'm not sure what I'm missing.

All in all worth a try if your looking for a pair of open back headphones with very good wear comfort. +4 hours is no problem for me - no discomfort and good audio for sure
I rate them 4? stars

Great headphones for the price
Sasko, 15.07.2021
I own many headphones ranging from 100 eur, to over 1500 eur. AKG K712 is one of the latest additions to my growing headphone collection. I work as sound engineer in live/studio/broadcast environments. I have used the AKG K712 for the past few months mainly working from home, mixing different material in home studio. These headphones are very comfortable to wear. You can use them for hours without any fatigue. The sound is very good. Lows are very good and detailed, midrange is good not muddy, soundstage is great, dynamics is good. When I got them I found the highs a bit harsh but after a few days of intensive use the highs improved quite a lot and I don't find them harsh any more. Like any other headphones AKG K712 need some time to get used to. I use them for occasional listening and for professional work together with my other headphones. AKG K712 can stand up to many headphones way above their price range, but can not compete with headphones in 1000+ eur range. Do not expect that from them, be realistic. AKG K712 benefit greatly from sonarworks reference and with correction applied can be easily the only headphones you need for mixing and mastering. Give the AKG K712 a try, you won't regret it.
